The Orbital Platform of Complex 56 is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 3.842 billion technicians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Master Control Room. The average income tax rate is 29.2%.

The very strong Complex 56ian economy, worth 261 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 68,057 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, and the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash". Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Complex 56's national animal is the silo rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Complex 56 is ranked 135,561st in the world and 11th in Taijitu for Most Primitive, scoring -63.25 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
